Search yielded no results so I thought I'd ask.

With the wealth of digital music available, are there some definite "You need to buy this!" albums for the uke world? Can be traditional jug band stuff all the way up to the boundary pushers of today.

I have a few of Jake Shimabukuro's albums which are great. I also highly recommend seeing him in concert if he is in your area.

I also have one of Euguene Ukulele's albums, which is also great! This is more traditional music that is catchy and easy on the ears.

The link to his website is here:

You can also check out his youtube account to see videos. Alot of the songs he plays on his youtube account are similar to the type of music on the CDs, but some songs are different versions.


Hope that is helpful!

Highly recommend Bosko & Honeys uke safari CD - it's a compilation so you get real variety!

Thanks, folks. I just picked up an album from Ukulele Jim and Jake Shimabukuro. They'll join my Lil' Rev and Iz albums. So far, only four uke albums, but my bass player album collection started that small too and it's currently over a hundred.
